BBB warns of roofing scam

(WEHT) – The Better Business Bureau says when the weather gets warmer, it’s a time for scammers and shady roof inspections too.

The BBB says scammers say they work on your neighbour’s roof and ask if you want an inspection too, but usually when you start asking questions you get very vague answers. Fraudsters can also reach you by phone, but they often hang up.

Homeowners are encouraged to contact their insurance company for a roof inspection.

Researching roofing companies is also a good idea before hiring a contractor. You can visit the BBB website for a closer look at company reviews.
